One of the cool things about messing around with silicones and resins. My little hand metal detector was worn down and the tip gone. I molded my other one that was in perfect shape, mixed resin with pigment and pressed in the messed up one and now have a perfect looking detector again. So many things you can do with molds and resins it’s insane. #oncefoundfx #makingmolds #garret #metaldetector #bombdisposal #unexplodedordnance #uxotech
⬅️swipe➡️Spent some time looking over the Leiomanos I keep to display in my home. Over the years, I’ve made roughly more than a hundred of them. Each one unique, each one a piece of me being carved into it, sanded into it and laced behind each tooth and eventually sealed with it. My work has demolished a cow leg on Spike tv’s Deadliest Warrior, “ Shaolin Monk versus Maori warrior,” wielded by Hollywood stuntman/actor Sala Baker. They have been used in a mock battle scene for Hawaii Five O, ep. Kupale. I’ve been asked to be in a survival show for TV where we’d have to survive by making our indigenous weapons by hand in the forest and hunt, trap and live off the land with. Something i told the producers in a phone meeting, wasn’t a reality since Hawai’i and the mainland are severely different and Hawaiians didnt use these weapons solely for hunting but warfare. It wasn’t a good fit for me. With each new weapon I create from scratch, I watch it become its own like a baby growing into an adult. I no longer pump them out trying to prove that I know what I’m doing. I enjoy my craft just as an old surf board maker knows how the curve of his board will cut through the waves at just the right weight, strength and flexibility. Just lucky to do this I guess.... 😏🤙🏽 #oncefoundfx #oncefoundfxsupply #kauila #leiomano #nihomano #tigershark #tigersharkteeth #hawaiian #hawaii #hawaiiculture #kanakamaoli #art #woodworking #hawaiiwood #kanaka
HAPPY HALLOWEEN ! Two years ago I was dressed as my favorite character from The Twilight Zone. This episode originally aired in 1960 on CBS called "Eye of the Beholder" also called "The Private World of Darkness." Created by Rod Serling, the Twilight Zone was an original masterpiece.
Thank you to @oncefoundfx who made the mask ! ****************
Now the questions that come to mind: "Where is this place and when is it" "What kind of world where ugliness is the norm and beauty the deviation from that norm" You want an answer The answer is it doesn't make any difference, because the old saying happens to be true. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, in this year or a hundred years hence. On this planet or wherever there is human life – perhaps out amongst the stars – beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Lesson to be learned in the Twilight Zone.
